Authorities are trying to manage a major traffic backup in multiple directions heading towards the New York State Fairgrounds.

Our traffic map shows traffic is heavily congested on Interstate 690 westbound as far back as N. Geddes Street, as well as on Interstate 690 eastbound as far back as Van Vleck Road.

Other roads like Milton Avenue and Route 695 are also backed up heading towards the Fair.

A photo sent by a CNYCentral viewer shows traffic stacked up on Interstate 90 eastbound at Exit 39, where travelers from the east would typically get off the Thruway to go to the Fair.
